Welcome to the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo! As part of the annual Valley Center Western Days, we invite you to enjoy this family-friendly rodeo experience.
Each May, the Valley Center community celebrates its western heritage with a week-long series of events including the Western Days Parade, the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo, an evening musical performance, the election of Valley Center’s “Honorary Mayor,” a carnival, and so much more.
We hope you will take the time to learn more about this celebration, and then come enjoy the fun and meet some new friends. In addition to having a great time, you will be supporting the good work in our community as the rodeo helps support the Valley Center Optimists Club and youth programs like 4H and and Future Farmers of America.
